The Virtual Boy has always intrigued me, a bit like a VR headset, it’s one of those devices that people cannot show you what it is like in a video or a screenshot. You just have to experience it for yourself.
I had previously heard a lot of people complaining of headaches and eye strain etc, but a lot of people suffer from those sorts of things with modern VR headsets too and I’ve never had any issues with them. So I finally decided to take the plunge and add one of these devices to my collection along with a flash cart so I can experience the entire library.
I must say I am actually quite impressed, I mean it’s not actually VR in any way, it’s more along the lines of a 3D Gameboy, but the effect is really good and the games I have played so far have also been very enjoyable.
The device is also completely different from anything else released back then, so it looks great on display and always draws attention to itself. No regrets at all about finally adding this to my collection, especially the fact it was my birthday present.
